Marijuana Anonymous World Services

Daily Reflections Book

Many members of the MA fellowship have been interested in a daily reader to add to our body of literature that helps marijuana addicts to find recovery. Years ago a group of MA members began soliciting submissions for the book, and recently a World Services Literature subcommittee was formed to further pursue the goal of bringing a 365 MA Daily Reflections book to fruition. The reflections are meant to support and extend strength and hope for our recovery, one day at a time.

All members of our fellowship are invited to submit daily reflections.* Please consider being of service, and share your experience, strength, and hope by following these simple guidelines and sample provided. You are also encouraged to look at existing daily recovery readers for inspiration and guidance related to style of writing/form.

Daily Reflections Submission

  • i.e. Humility*
  • i.e. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking about yourself less (from the Life With Hope book, page 43, 3rd edition)
  • i.e. When I got to recovery and heard the term “humility,” I had no idea what they were talking about. I had to look the word up in the dictionary. It still didn't make sense until I started working the Steps with my sponsor. I kept hearing people at meetings say things like: humility is being “right size” with your Higher Power (and other people)...not better than or worse than. I also heard that the Latin root of the word humility means “of the earth.” Then I heard that addicts are ego-maniacs with an inferiority complex. As I worked the Steps, I began to lose that sense of feeling less than all the time. A miracle happened and I began to work the Third Step every day, praying to my Higher Power to do their will, not mine. Being in acceptance also feels like humility because it means I know I’m not in charge or thinking I know best.
  • i.e. Today, freedom comes from seeking and being willing to carry out my Higher Power’s will.
